Dogs have been observed licking themselves, their puppies and other dogs as a means of self-cleaning. They do this to shed the dead outer layer of their skin cells. If it is dry, the shedding process can be uncomfortable. So by cleaning themselves, dogs remove dead skin cells and make themselves feel more comfortable. The licking often occurs soon after awakening or during times when the dog is bored or lonely.When you awaken in the morning, your dog may want to greet you with a lick on the cheek or foreleg. This is often a sign that he’s happy to see you and will also start shedding his old coat in preparation for fresh growth.So how does it make them more comfortable?Dogs lick themselves to reduce pain and itching from insect bites and stings. It may also help prevent hair loss (dandruff). When they groom themselves, they remove dead skin cells by rubbing their faces and bodies against hard surfaces such as counters, furniture and floors. This helps them keep their skin smooth and healthy.
Why is my dog happy when I wake up?
Your dog is happy when you wake up because he/she can feel the energy in the air and can sense that something exciting might be happening. Dogs are pack animals and are used to living in a group, so they like to be where there is most activity. A dog may also be happy because he or she can hear from you that breakfast is ready. Perhaps your dog is even waiting for you to go and get him/her breakfast.Dogs live in the here and now and are not good at planning ahead. They are more interested in now getting the food out than in making sure it will still be there when they get back. When you prepare your dog’s meals, make sure to put fresh food away first so they don’t eat it all before you can put it away. If they eat it all before you can get it out, then there won’t be any left for them when they get back!
